Another Choice (5/6), Howaya C D And E (15/8), Westcoastinformant (7/2), Ask Bob (10/1), Eco Pete (18/1), Croi Corcra (20/1), Every River (28/1), So Ladylike (33/1), Forest Pump (50/1), Rohirrim Lad (50/1), Applejack Poet (66/1), All Loved Up (80/1)

Verdict

ANOTHER CHOICE made a promsing start over hurdles when runner-up at Punchestown and with improvement very much on the cards he can go one better at the chief expense of Howaya C D And E who also shaped well on her first go in this sphere when second at Bellewstown. Westcoastinformant is another with the form to have a say and he rates a solid place prospect.
